there are reasons for reboot (sometimes need to poweroff all the rigs)
there are reasons also for downgrade firmware (the original firmware, 2.5.26, I feel it more agressive increasing Th mining )
I think We all obviously want maximum time mining, but nobody can imagine that one option in menu official firmware can brick the miner.
After i communicate to support , that firmware dissapear from menu )
first i now check my miner.you don't want use official firmware and force install firmware by your idea.



















first i now check

even using the old firmware I still get a lot of corruption.

I think maybe the SD card is broken. Whre can I find a image file for SP30?

thanks.

i get a lot of similar logging on an SP31 unit that has 3 consistently bad chips, and 1-2 bad chips that are a bit inconsistent in when they show up

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461

well I just disable another asic, third one in 2 months!

Only nderclocking to 0.64-0.645  make it stable again. hashing only 2.8Ghz instead of advertised 4.5

so far I am not very happy with the spondoolies the only miners that didnt give me any trouble are S3 and the S5 of bitmain. (s4 is sometimes a pain also)

I am afraid on this rate disabling one or two chip every month over a couple of months the log will say;

Disable every ASIC and BUY something else, anything else would be fine  Angry

You really expect some high end product when you see a team of good engineering working on something. Its a new machine and dying 3 chips in 2 months will I didn't overclock anything and the temp of the room was always below 27 degree. Its a real disappointment so far.

How were your voltage/overclock settings before the ASICs died? Medium, high, highest or custom?
I feel that running them @ highest pushes the chips to the limits which results in malfunctions long-term, even at low room temperatures. I am running my SP30 at medium overclock settings @4Th/s, although now as weather gets hotter will probably go even lower, 0.65/0.66v @3.4Th/s just to be safe.

its was on the stock setting of low 0.655 and high 0.75

You dont find now 2.5.12 in menu because I warned spondoolies support for this problem, so they deleted from the menu.
But the question is still here ...
do you think spondoolies might give me a new controlboard ?

there are reasons for reboot (sometimes need to poweroff all the rigs)
there are reasons also for downgrade firmware (the original firmware, 2.5.26, I feel it more agressive increasing Th mining )
I think We all obviously want maximum time mining, but nobody can imagine that one option in menu official firmware can brick the miner.
After i communicate to support , that firmware dissapear from menu )
first i now check my miner.you don't want use official firmware and force install firmware by your idea.



















first i now check

Guy

many thanks for that, Guy.

I received no such pleasantry in my mail from Barbara.

She has decided however, contrary to the previous 'bordering on libelous' mail to finally agree to maybe swap the dead board for a working one.

maybe...

if it hasnt 'rusted/corroded' in the fortnight i was told NOT to ship it back because it was 'working perfectly' and 'the ONLY reason it would not be, was if it was incorrectly installed'  


bearing in mind it arrived dusty, scratched & non-functional.

Allright,

RMA is close, Unit will be on my way tomorrow (I guess).

Hope I can hash a bit more coins with it ;-)

The Postal guy just dropped off a box with an eBay SP20 from Florida -   Inside, the boards had shifted off their mounting rails to the point that the PCIe power plugs didn't line up, oops !  Took it apart and noticed several ASICs were loose.  Each heatsink is held to the board with a captive stud and spring, then locked into place with what appears to be a high-temperature hot-melt glue to hold everything into place, or in this case not holding it in place.  Any clue as to the correct glue used here ?  Hoping it's not too critical, looking for specs now.  Ugh. Huh

My understanding is that the glue was used to better secure the heatsinks during shipment. I don't think the the glue matters for normal operation of the SP20. Apparently it doesn't always hold, or maybe not on a 2nd/3rd shipment.
